CHILLFILTR - Recent Top Picks
An incisive eye for getting to the point, as well as some tube-drenched power chords, help The Memoirs to build a modern sound and story that is all their own.
It's a snappy beat and an overdriven vocal that gives hints of a Jack White. This is punk-forward riff rock of the highest order.
A warm mid-tempo romp with shades of mono synth and a sparse, well-poised melodic narrative.
It is a motivated sound that is precise, deliberate, and profoundly human, with a message of realism and personal growth.
It's a lead vocal with a big natural vibrato and a cynical smirk. Lyrically it strikes a tone of urban alarmism, a message of getting woke for the esoteric among us.
The final takeaway is a dark poem to the one that got away, one that is equal parts self-humiliation, catharsis, and defeatism.
A confident hand measures the doses of acoustic guitar, a fluttering pulse-driven electric bass, and the vocal pills of a beautifully understated duet.
It's a walk in the afternoon sunshine; in the style of an Elliot Smith, Alex Siegel makes groove entirely out of a guitar strum and the barest of drum kits.
It's a bouncy synth-soul groove, and razor sharp vocals, with a deep respect for the power of single-note piano lines.
It's a gorgeous harmony that sets up the chorus turn, and the narrative theme seems to continue the process of self-invention, creating new twists as the song progresses.
This sounds to me like a chorus from a Kid Rock song with funk vocals from JJ Grey. It's a party, plain and simple, with lots of beer and octave pedals.
It's a lanky sort of beat, that goes by in a flash; like a little musical candy bar. With a side of glam-fuzz guitar.
